The more the virus is allowed to run rampant, the more likely healthcare workers may be exposed to the virus. Healthcare workers have already died from the virus. There isn't enough PPE. The US had time to prepare and we didn't. I value my health and happiness over money. In my opinion, the US has their priorities backwards. Of course, we can't stay closed forever. Look at Canada, the UK and other developed countries. We are so far into individualism that we are failing. Other countries have a far better quality of life than we do. If we can't take care of our vulnerable, what does that say about us?
